Although this show features an amazing Dark Star, that song (by virtue of its spacious quietness and ambience) is the only one you can hear clearly on this tape. Worth it for the Dark Star alone, but over all not special.

Subject: Fantastic Show
I was lucky enough to be at this show. It was fantastic in person, like some a kind of magical event. I wish a soundboard existed, but this recording is a blessing in any event. I drove over from Meadville, PA with a bunch of friends. The show went blissfully on into the wee hours.

So glad this tape exists.

The Dark Star really makes it. There's some beautiful jamming starting round 14:00 or so ... it's nice how they keep it laid back ... and then right around 17:00 Jerry just backs into this beautiful chord that, had I been there, might have caused me to stumble...

This fossil provides an extraordinary 'missing link' in the evolution of GDTRFB - only second performance with lyric and first? with the familiar, pronounced 'WBYGN jam'.
Thanks to all involved. Keep digging!

Subject: Hello Cleveland!!
Despite numerous flaws and some infuriating cuts, this recording of the Dead's first show in Cleveland is well worth your time if you're a fan of this era (and who isn't?). The opportunity to hear a "new" Dark Star from 1970 should be reason enough to give this one a listen.

First set highlights include a nice China> Rider and a fiery Other One which is angling toward the greatness of Other Ones yet to come (think 4/28/71). Good Lovin is one of the best I've ever heard and the true show-stopper here, including a rare bass solo (!) and very sharp licks from Garcia and the rest of the band.

Sound isn't too bad considering the taper was a teenager with basic equipment. I'm giving it four stars to offset the three star ratings below. Probably about a 3.5, all things considered.

I love AUDS and especially the efforts heads took back then to record. I have no comparison prior to CM cleaning this up. Overall the band is on and the recording is like the majority of AUDS in 70'A Grate year too, all tunes are played with vigor, who can turn down a Dark Star not previously circulated! I remember 1/17/68 coming into circulation a few years ago, and hearing a Dark Star I hadn't heard. No difference here. Love it Archive

Subject: Song titles are misaligned
I saw that 5:54 Dark Star and thought, WTF? Fortunately it's the next track down and a healthy 19:12. It's a treat to hear a "new" show from 1970 and the aud recording is quite decent for the time.
